Tracking in Longitudinal Household Surveys


Sample attrition is one of the inherent challenges faced by any longitudinal household survey, and among surveys in developing countries, mobility accounts for much of this attrition. Tracking individuals and households can entail significant costs and may require specific focus by the organization conducting the survey. Drawing from experiences from previous and ongoing surveys, this paper presents recommendations on methodology for successfully implementing tracking in panel household surveys.
